So I think we’ve found it... after two years addicted to Rightmove. And by ‘it’ I mean our house. One slight problem, it’s quiiite a lot over our budget, so now it’s evenings spent looking at finances and see what we can do to save and what we need to cut down on.
The house has got the country kitchen I always wanted, not in duck egg blue but it’s sage green and to be honest I like it just as much! It’s got a bay window, it’s on a super lovely street, it’s near town so Alex can walk to get his hair cut which seemed to be the most important thing to him throughout this whole process it’s got a fire place, and also a pretty fabulous wall in the master bedroom we can add fitted wardrobes, you know, the important stuff.
I can totally see myself in that house for the next 25 years with a dog one day a baby and the kitchen is a fabulous spot to bake scones and cake. The house is a compromise between both what Alex and I want and I don’t even feel sad it’s not got a roll top Bath or exposed brick wall because to have actually found something we both love, in a town we both love, is something close to a miracle.
So here is to hoping we can sort things out and buy it, but I don’t want to get my hopes too high Please keep your fingers and toes crossed!
Ps as much as I wish it were, I’m not moving into THIS house
